14-15Jul2012: Beginners Scythe Course

Scything!
From Alastair Inglis al.inglis@yahoo.co.uk

I'm a scythesman from Exeter, running beginners scything courses in Devon throughout the summer. I wondered whether any of your Transition folk might be interested in learning to scythe, particularly those in the Food & Energy group, those with allotments, land-shares, or smallholdings etc...
Attached is my list of courses for this season, although I can provide a course for your group, with a minimum of 4 participants. Max group size is 6, so lots of personal attention. Courses cost £45 per person. I also have Austrian scythes and associated equipment for sale on the courses, or by arrangement.
Let me know what you think!
Cheers for now,
Alastair Inglis
